[National Pro Bono Week] NAMATI: Closing The Global Justice Gap with Vivek Maru: Putting the Power of Law in People’s Hands

Tuesday, October 22, 2019 @ 12:50 pm - 2:00 pm

Join us to hear about how community paralegals are closing the global justice gap and securing environmental justice from Vivek Maru, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Namati and author of the new book Community Paralegals and the Pursuit of Justice.  What does Namati do? In its own words, “Law is supposed to be one of our most powerful tools for advancing justice. But for billions of people around the world, the law is broken. It’s an abstraction—or worse, a threat. Namati advances justice by equipping people to understand, use, and shape the laws that affect them.”  We hope you will come join us to learn about this innovative approach to securing justice around the globe. RSVP here!

Co-Sponsored by the International Human Rights Law Clinic; Pro Bono Program
